Name Autonomous Robotic Methodologies for Multidisciplinary Applications
Funding Reference FCT - PRAXIS XXI 3/3.1/TPR/23/94
Dates 1995|2000

The objectives of this project are to study, develop and test methodologies for both sensoring perception and guidance of autonomous vehicles operating in dynamic, structured and partially structured environments known up to some uncertainty level. This project considers all the different functional modules necessary to define the locomotion dynamics of an autonomous robot: positioning, obstacle detection and recognition, control, path planning, communications and mission management.
